The Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group (NSPIRG) has come under attack by students who seek to have NSPIRG's funding put to a vote by the membership of the Dalhousie Student Union (DSU) at an upcoming General Meeting on April 1.
In response, on March 30, NSPIRG held a press conference where students, faculty and community members voiced their support for the organization.
Many speakers highlighted the importance of the organization for those from marginalized communities on campus and in Halifax. "We have the right to have our voices and issues heard," says Marla Brown of the Black Students Law Association.
